Broadsheet's Fig, Onion, Prosciutto and Gorgonzola Focaccia
My buddy Bonanza Jellybean wanted to know how to make my favorite comfort food. I stumbled across this by accident, and I keep a package of Focaccia mix in the pantry in case the mood strikes. There are very few flavors that blend as well as the sweetness of figs, or other jammy fruit and a strong cheese. Bleu or gorgonzola are great choices.

Start out with a box of Buitoni Rosemary and Garlic Focaccia Mix. Everybody carries it.

Mix it up according to the package directions, but before you pop it in the oven, spread a very thin layer of fig jam on the dough, add a generous amount caramelized onions, some crumbled or torn strips of good prosciutto, and a generous helping of gorgonzola (it's creamier and melts better than bleu cheese - but I only had bleu cheese on hand last night - it's fine too).

Trader Joe's used to carry a yummy caramelized onion and fig spread, which is what I originally used in this recipe, but I haven't been able to find it lately. If you make a big batch of caramelized onions - they'll keep for a month or more.
